‘The Scottish Psychopath’ responded to the remarks made by Wade Barrett during the interview.
He said that he used to bully McIntyre not only inside the squared circle but outside of that too when they lived together. Barrett spoke about the history they share and says its an “easy story to tell.”
Wade Barrett said, “I’ve probably beaten him up away from the wrestling scene, or away from the cameras, when we used to live together. I basically used to bully him every night. I used to kick the hell out of him, pour cans of beans over his head, stuff like that. He’d be in the corner crying, sobbing away, begging for mercy. So he knows that as a man, I can destroy him at any time that I wanted.”
He said that Drew McIntyre might be scary to the other wrestlers in the business due to his strong physique but Wade Barrett is not afraid of him and can dominate him in the ring.
He said, “The truth is, he knows I can batter him, and humiliate him.”
“Whenever I’m ready I can just step in the ring and take whatever I want from him. He knows that, he’s aware of it, but one day perhaps the world might see it”, added Barrett.
We might see them both share the ring when Barrett returns for his in-ring action in the future.
